125 Elliot Avenue is a multi-family home in a county with the art of urban culture but a quiet and calm sub-urban feel.

Built in 1973, located in the Ludlow County of Yonkers. This building resides in the second most populated county of New York (after the Bronx). The area near this building may contain hamlets that date back to the 1600s and may have historical points of interest as well as many parks and sectors with a lesser urban development. This area has a family household percentage of 65% with the average household size containing 3 people.

A large residential development like Seaman faces unique challenges when trying to reduce costs while keeping their property operations running smoothly. Every problem and every cost is amplified on a large scale. seaman condominiums were concerned with their constantly increasing water and hot water usage and the rising cost of water and energy in New York City. They needed a solution that would work on a community wide scale and they needed someone that would be able to implement that solution seamlessly. The management team at Seaman turned to The Water Scrooge because of their industry leading, proprietary solutions and their track record reducing water and hot water related costs in large multi-family properties in the New York City area.


The Water Scrooge team needed to identify the cause of the rising water usage at seaman so they can provide the right solution, and they had to do it for more then 170 buildings. They started by analyzing the water usage for the entire seaman development, building by building. After extensive research, The Water Scrooge was able to propose a solution. The Water Scrooge implemented their solution in phases in order to test their assumptions about the causes of the community wide water problem. After succesfull deployment in the first group of buildings, they scaled up to the rest of the locations. The Water Scrooge was able to identify the root causes of the high water usage, and and confirm the reduction in water usage at each building throughout the project.

Saving water not only saves you money, it saves the environment.
